Streamline Health(R) Expands into Public Sector with New Customer, Columbus Public Health Vital Statistics Office

Streamline Health's Document Management Solutions to Advance Efficiency and

Improve Customer Service for Franklin County Vital Statistics Office

CINCINNATI, July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: STRM) today announced that the Columbus Public Health Vital Statistics Office will implement Streamline Health's document management and workflow solutions using remote hosting services. As part of their plan, the Vital Statistics Office will use Streamline Health's solutions for the storage and retrieval of birth, death and other vital documents and use their workflow solutions to enhance operational efficiencies and customer response time.

The Columbus Vital Statistics Office serves the public of one of Ohio's largest counties, Franklin County, with a population of 1,095,662, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's 2006 Population Estimates. The Vital Statistics Office registers and issues certified copies of Franklin County birth and death certificates, as well as handling corrections and court ordered changes. Currently, the Office maintains its birth and death records on microfilm rolls dating back to 1908 and uses an offsite storage facility for other forms that must be kept according to the City of Columbus retention schedule. The vital documents for an individual are stored according to when the changes take place, so lifetime records are fragmented across various microfilm rolls, making them difficult to locate.

"We sought a document management solution that could handle our large volume of requests, assist us in protecting our clients against identify theft and fraud, provide better tracking of HIPAA accounting of disclosure and enable us to reduce labor-intensive searches," stated Kimberly Sims-Mills, Director of Vital Statistics, Columbus Public Health. "Streamline Health's solutions, especially with their Release of Information Workflow module, offered the most robust and flexible option that addressed scalability, security and workflow for public record information requests."

As part of the implementation plan, the Vital Statistics Office selected Streamline Health's remotely-hosted solution, allowing them to more quickly implement accessANYware(TM), DataManager and Release of Information Workflow(TM) solutions, with the technical support of Streamline Health's trained IT staff. Streamline Health's flagship solution, accessANYware, will provide the Vital Statistics Office with a centralized document repository for their records with convenient access for retrieval of complete "lifetime" records.

"The requirements of the Vital Statistics Office are a natural fit with our Streamline Health solutions, which will facilitate their capability to locate and deliver specific information as needed to the public," according to Brian Patsy, president and CEO of Streamline Health. "By using our remote-hosting option, our new client can take advantage of our solutions without the need for extensive IT resources, while ensuring the privacy of health information and security of public records. We believe that our workflow solutions can provide similar benefits to other public sector organizations that have a need to manage and process documents or public records that are fragmented across multiple locations."
